PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon has hired UMass assistant Marlon Williamson for the same position with the Panthers.
Williamson replaces Barry Rohrssen, who left Pitt to join John Calipari's staff at Kentucky.
The 33-year-old Williamson spent the last two seasons at Massachusetts as an assistant to Derek Kellogg, helping the Minutemen to an NCAA tournament bid earlier this year. Prior to joining UMass, Williamson spent nine years coaching Detroit-based AAU program ''The Family.''
Williamson played four seasons as a point guard at Youngstown State from 1999-2003 before getting into coaching.
Dixon said Williamson will focus on recruiting, scouting and player development.
